Moulton, Texas

Moulton was established in the 1850s in Lavaca County at the headwaters of the Lavaca River. In 1887, the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad built north to Waco, within two miles of the community. A railroad station was constructed and named Topeka; however, realizing the economic potential of the rail connection, the old community gradually drifted over to the new station, which inherited the name, post office, and business of Old Moulton. Moulton boasts a Czech-German heritage which is still evident today as a center for agribusiness and manufacturing.

Moulton's quaint storefronts are reminiscent of the late 1800s, complete with porches and benches. Shoppers find old-fashioned antique shops and restaurants to visit along with bed & breakfast accommodations. Several historical markers are found within the city, as well as the original Old Moulton townsite.

The city park includes a picnic area, a small lake, playground, jogging trail, tennis courts, baseball field, and hookups for RV camping. In season, hunters take white-tailed deer, quail, and dove.
